Tartar

Short post for an awesome sauce.

I love this sauce with different deep-fry seafood, it is just amazing. Additionally, it is the perfect sauce for the Triple Crisp Burger.


Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon of capers
  • 1 gherkin

  1. Chop the capers and the gherkin very thinly.
  2. I like to crush it then some more in a pestle and mortar.
  3. Finally add the mayonnaise and mix thoroughly.

Bon appétit!

Tartiflette

tartiflette

Tartiflette is an amazing potato bake with bacon, onions and a cheese called Reblochon.
It brings potato bakes to a whole new level.

If you can not find Reblochon, you can try replacing it with a mix of Brie, Gruyere and Tomme.

PS: It is my version of it so it may be different from the “original” one. 😉


Ingredients for 5 to 6 people:

  • 300gr of bacon
  • 2 onions
  • 1kg of potatoes
  • 4 big tablespoons of sour cream
  • A dash of beer
  • 250gr of Reblochon

  1. Boil your potatoes until tender.
  2. Dice your onions and and bacon.
  3. Cook your bacon in a pan on medium heat until it render some fat.
  4. Remove the bacon and cook the onions in the bacon fat on medium heat until the onion begins to turn translucent.
  5. Add the bacon in the onions with a dash of beer and cook for two more minutes.
  6. Peel the potatoes and cut it into 5mm to 1cm slices.
  7. Preheat your oven at 180°C or 360°F.
  8. Use half of the potatoes to do a layer on the bottom of an oven dish.
  9. Use all the bacon-onion mix to make a layer on top of the potatoes.
  10. Add another layer of potatoes.
  11. Spread the sour cream on that last layer of potatoes and finally top it with thin slices of Reblochon (with the rind).
  12. Cook in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the cheese is perfectly melted and golden brown.

Bon appétit!

“El Pollo Mexicana” Burger

El pollo mexicana

Hey everybody! Longtime no posting, I had a lot of exam to write but I’m back!

I did this burger quite some time ago after being inspired during a Mexican dinner with some friends.

You can make it with chicken mince or a chicken breast, and you can even add some sour cream.

I hope you give it a try and enjoy it 😉


For 2 burgers:

  • Burger buns
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 small onion or a shallot
  • 100gr of black beans
  • Cheddar
  • Half a lemon or lime
  • Some lettuce
  • 300gr of chicken mince or 2 chicken breasts
  • Spices:
    • Paprika (normal and smoked if you have)
    • Cayenne pepper
    • Black pepper
    • Chili powder
  • Optional: One big teaspoon of sour cream

  1. First mix one teaspoon of each spice together
  2. Dice thinly the onion (or shallot) and the tomato and mix them both with the juice of half a lemon (or lime). That makes a very simple salsa.
  3. Transform the beans in a paste by using a food processor or a pestle and mortar.
  4. Mash the avocado.
  5. Form patties from your chicken mince or butterfly the breasts.
  6. Cook your chicken on medium-high heat in a pan with a little bit of olive oil.
  7. Toast your buns.
  8. When the chicken is golden brown, add a dash of water and the spices and toss the chicken in those spices. As soon as the chicken is nicely covered with spices remove it from the heat. Otherwise the spices will burn.
  9. Finally build your burger (from bottom to top):
    1. Bottom bun
    2. Lettuce
    3. Beans paste
    4. Cheddar
    5. Optional: Sour cream
    6. Chicken in spices
    7. Mashed avocado
    8. Salsa
    9. Top bun

Bon appétit! =D
